I think firstly one has to be realistic --is what you have to offer to the company (based on aptitude and credentials) a reasonable match with your requested salary? If no, you should probably revise your expectations. If yes, perhaps you could explain why and reach some sort of compromise with your potential employer. If you are really confident of what you have to offer and no compromise can be reached, perhaps you should look for another company. Never settle for less than you deserve (but only if you deserve it) (:
I don't think NUS offers a lot of bursaries for summer school but I did get the NASA one for my exchange programme to UC Berkeley, California (:
Generally I think girls look better with long hair and guys with short, but that's a personal preference --it really depends on the individual too!
I think it takes years haha. To me, a liking for someone/something is not the same as love, which can only come over time and sacrifice.
Hi, I understand... you can pick one key reading per week that the prof highlights (bc that's probably the most important one) and then get the key concepts, which you should then relate back to that week's topic (this is a good guide for your essays too). Sociology is very much based on concepts/theories so as long as you get those, it shouldn't be too much of a problem! Good luck (:
Haha no worries! My mom taught me herself. For admission to NUS I wrote a personal statement and submitted documents from my home-school program, but i do not have any standardised certs like A levels/poly diploma (:
I had a B- for a 25% assignment previously but managed to get B+ in the end! You can't exercise s/u for a major module anyway, so I would say just keep doing your best. Afterall, B- to B+ is still a huge difference and could really prevent a huge detriment to your CAP. You can do it (:
Yes I am definitely thinking of doing an honours thesis but unfortunately I don't have a concrete research thesis yet ):
Hi, yes I am (: I'm finishing year 3 this semester, going back to NUS in AY 2017-18 to finish up year 4. Hope that helps!
Hi! Sure, I could do that but there isn't that much to update because I'm on exchange this sem and won't be taking any NUS modules
Hey yes you can! Sorry this is a little late!
Yes I was, because my parents travelled often when I was little (partially also cause my parents don't really agree with the education system here) . It was a lot of self-studying, but parents have to take a test before they are permitted to homeschool their kids (:
Yes I was! I tell everyone and firmly believe it's really God's miracle (: I'm very thankful to be here!
Alone! But I made so many amazing friends over summer school ,would highly recommend it esp if you wanna catch up on mods/graduate early (:
Hi there, nope I don't have O/A level certificates, actually not even PSLE haha. I took a private cert called ICCE (you can google it). I was homeschooled because my parents travelled a lot when I was little (:
Yup we can do one mod! I did 8MCs (two mods) over summer school (:
I haven't really lived in that many places, mostly in Asia! Auckland --> Hongkong --> Xiamen --> Beijing --> Singapore haha I would saw New Zealand is really beautiful if you're into hiking/photography/nature (:
Hi! It's great to hear from you haha i'm really excited about cal --drop me some notes on where I should visit please :P
If I work in the public sector, I would expect a minimum salary of $3,500 because that is pretty standard for first class honors graduates (:
Because I'm behind on MCs as I fell sick and had to skip finals in year one ):
Hi sorry for the late reply! I don't think it's that valuable with regards to employment opportunities (given advice from professors and seniors) , but I would do it if I'm extremely interested in both subjects (:
No it's no possible! it's really bad for your eyes please don't do that haha
Haha i'm doing summer school (:
Yeah I have! The sem I was on it I had like a 4.9. I think as long as you have a cap above 4.5 it's possible to get placed on the Dean's List but it's dependent on the percentage so if everyone does really well then it might even be from 4.7-4.8 onwards (:
